So I guess this is the curse of being an introvert as you all know I am: with a little planning I can pull off talking to a large group, but when it comes to things that will probably make me cry, no amount of planning will help. I feel though like I missed an important opportunity tonight. So now at home by myself I can tell you all how much this team has meant to me.
It has been such an honor  that you all have shared your lives with me.  Every year after the season ends I get sad that I won't get to see your smiling faces everyday. 
I want you to know that each one of you is an amazing person that brings joy to this team. Everyone adds and balances each other into one cohesive unit unlike any other team I've been a part of.
I want you to know that what you have here at Arlington is unique.  The way this team operates and runs is not how all schools are.  That is largely because of your coaches.  It's not often that your coaches care more about who you are as a person as they do about their record for the season. 
Having played through all the levels soccer, I can't tell you how great it made me feel to know that there are coaches like these three guys investing into the lives of great and deserving people like yourselves.
If any of you ever needs soccer advice, recruiting advice, or just life advice find me on Facebook.  And for Pete's sake just go to young life on Monday night! It'll be the best decision you've ever made.
I love you guys and know that nothing will ever compare to the memories I've made with you.

We have been on quite a run these past two weeks with four consecutive wins. We topped it off with an amazing senior night night. It was awesome to see how well Dana, Kristen, Teresa, Sadie and Cassie played last night. We have done something that many outside of our team thought was impossible. We finished 3rd in league and qualified for districts. WAY TO GO GIRLS! The game will be Saturday, 1 pm at Edmonds Stadium vs Edmonds Woodway.

Big Week!

We have two big games this week against rivals Stanwood and MP. We need some girls to really step up. We learned a lot against Snohomish and played pretty well in the second half. I think that will carry over as we open up at home on Tuesday night vs the Spartans. Congratulations to Nellie and Marissa for being selected athletes of the week. The coaches believe they have shown outstanding effort, determination and heart in practice and games throughout the past three weeks. Way to go girls!

Great Start

What a game last night! That is the most goals we have ever scored in my 15 years of coaching HS soccer. We still have a lot of questions because we weren't really tested defensively. Those questions will be answered tomorrow against Snohomish. This will be a great game to see how far we have come and how much we still have to do.
